User-generated Cartoons

beano

Following the PC-gone-mad move to make Dennis the Menace less of a menace (so, Walter the Softy isn’t bullied in case people think it’s because he’s gay, Gnasher the dog doesn’t gnash, and Dennis’s Dad isn’t allowed to spank him when he’s bad), the Beano is now handing control over to its readers with a user-generated cartoon competition.

Launching at the Edinburgh international book festival this weekend, children are invited to co-create a new Beano character. Beano artists will draw the new character on an overhead digital screen as suggestions are made by the audience. The character will appear in a future issue of the comic.
